Water in fuel msg on 06 F350 diesel?
Im sure its been asked before.. but
My 06 has 24,400 miles on it today. I bought it with less than 4k miles, assuming the fuel filters were "original" at that time, i changed them BOTH with new motorcraft ones at 23,000 miles. They wernt totally dirty, but not very clean.
Now 1,400 miles later, im getting Water in Fuel message that pops up on the dash while driving around, it was 25-34degrees out while this was happening, i saw no performance affects at all.
Could the water need to be drained from the lower filter ALREADY?
Or is it most likely the Hess 40cetane rating diesel i last filled up on 100 miles ago had a lot in it?
Does the sensor trigger when the water separator is FILLED or when it detects moisture in the incoming fuel?
